Hunting – a modern contradiction?: Hunting for leisure is a widespread activity for millions of people around the world, even though hunting no longer is a life supporting necessity of modern man. From a social point of view, hunting for leisure is an interesting phenomenon. Why do people of the modern world continue to practice hunting? What are the preferences of the modern hunter? How are the preferences and conduct of hunters related to the social and demographic factors? What are the social, political and economical impacts of hunting? What motivates people to hunt? - In spite of the fact that hunting is a common source of conflict between different interests, only very few studies has been made to produce knowledge about people hunting for leisure. The survey “Hunters in the new millennium” is an attempt to contribute to a better understanding of hunters and hunting in an increasing urbanized world. The result of the survey have not been internationally published before.
